Offense Goes Cold
In this episode, Rip recaps the week in MLB and MiLB baseball. The Houston Astros got their offense off to a hot start to start the season but has since cooled off. They looked to get back to form as they open the 2022 season at home for the first time this season in the upcoming week. The new-look Texas Rangers have gotten their offense going this season, but the starting pitching has not been up to par. The Rangers are hoping for a change of fortune as they hit the road in the upcoming week. Follow the show on Twitter, @TxBaseballRpt, and follow Rip on Twitter, @ripgriffin3.
